The performance of pantomime originates at its earliest in ancient Greece; the name is taken from a single masked dancer called Pantomimus, although performances were not necessarily silent. In Medieval Europe, early forms of mime such as mummer plays and later dumbshows evolved. In early nineteenth century Paris, Jean-Gaspard Deburau solidified the many attributes that we have come to know in modern times — the silent figure in whiteface. Font:…

This contest ended day 20 December, 2008 and since then I've been struggling myself to pick all the winners. Therefore, besides apologising for being so late with the results, I must let you know which were my criteria while picking a winner, so I'll give you my topics of thought:

- Is the mime nude? xD
- Is the composition entertaining/original? How much?
- Is it a good photo / does it represent the best? How much?

If yes is the answer then the photos would automatically pass the first process of jurying. After this I just had to figure out which were the ones I liked more so I could have an order or places. This was extremely difficult for me to do because the places to award were only 5 and I liked (read: love) 8 of them...

So, to cut things short, in the end, being a good photo, but most of all, being entertaining paid out! :Aww:
